Many of our sponsor dogs are “special needs” greyhounds whose stay at our California adoption center may be longer than most, requiring more resources to feed, medicate and provide other care. Becoming a sponsor is a great way to be a GAC “insider” and get to know some of the greyhounds you are helping.
All it takes is a $20 (or more) monthly donation to be linked to one of our carefully chosen sponsor dogs. You’ll receive a monthly mailing complete with a photo of your dog and a detailed letter about all their activities. Once your dog finds a forever home, you’ll be the first to know!
LEARN MORE ABOUT THE SPONSOR DOGS
MILHOUSE is a blue fawn boy who was born on 3/11/2011 and arrived on 3/15/2019 with a group of 10 dogs from Macau, China. He is a really nice boy who was one of the youngest in his group, even though he's 8! Milhouse enjoys sunning himself and being close to humans.
BOWSER is a 2-year-old black boy that arrived in April 2020. When he arrived, he was extremely skinny, with poor skin/coat, and parasites. We are still treating these parasites months later. He is a really happy boy that loves humans and gets along with other dogs.
JEOPARDY is a 3-year-old brindle female that arrived in November 2020 with a badly broken hock. Thankfully, she was able to heal the leg without any surgery, just a splint. Now that she has her cast off, she's working on regaining her strength and learning about the outside. She's a shy, nervous girl who needs some exposure before going home, but she's very loving with the people she knows!
BABYFLO is a 6-year-old black female that arrived at the kennel in September 2020 with one other female, Lolo. Babyflo and Lolo were both brood moms, meaning they gave birth to litters of puppies. Babyflo had two litters and within a few weeks after her arrival she started limping. It was soon discovered that she has corns, which are an issue unique to greyhounds for unknown reasons. Corns are keratin calluses that form in the paw pads and make it feel like the hound is walking on rocks. There is no cure for corns, just management, and GAC is trying different options to ease Babyflo's discomfort.
